NFL Draft 2013

2013 Vikings Territory Big Board

The 2013 NFL Draft is drawing nearer and we here at VT are giddy as can be, like kids before Christmas.

One of the things we’ve done in recent years is create a “Big Board” that stacks up all the NFL Draft prospects in a unique way, and will allow you to follow along throughout Draft Weekend to see who we have remaining as our top rated prospects as the weekend progresses.

The Big Board is not necessarily strictly our rankings.  We use boards of all our favorite draft analysts, some mainstream and some not, and then factor in our own Vikings-specific rankings, to create a unique board that averages the opinions of everyone we include.  You can view the entire board here, where we have ranked 229 players, and can access it at any time from the menu section at the top of our main page.  Brett even put together a nifty little option for those that might be interested in printing it off to follow along during the event.

Since the Vikings have two of the top 25 picks in this Draft, here is how we stack the top 25 players of this year’s class:

1.  Luke Joeckel, OT

2.  Star Lotulelei, DT

3.  Sheldon Richardson, DT

4.  Dee Milliner, CB

5.  Chance Warmack, G

6.  Eric Fisher, OT

7, Jonathan Cooper, G

8.  Sharrif Floyd, DT

9.  Dion Jordan, DE

10.  Barkevious Mingo, DE

11.  Jarvis Jones, DE/OLB

12.  Kenny Vaccaro, S

13.  Bjoern Werner, DE

14.  Ezekiel Ansah, DE

15.  Tavon Austin, WR

16.  Lane Johnson, OT

17.  Manti Te’o, LB

18.  Cordarrelle Patterson, WR

19.  Desmond Trufant, CB

20.  Sylvester Williams, DT

21.  Geno Smith, QB

22.  Xavier Rhodes, CB

23.  Kawann Short, DT

24.  Keenan Allen, WR

25.  Tyler Eifert, TE

    1. We’d love to see yours Skol! Thanks man.

      On a side note… We may be looking for help over draft weekend keeping the board up-to-date with who’s been selected. Anyone out there that might be interested? All you’ll need is some free time and a Google account (which we can set you up with…).

      Let us know!

      1. I emailed mine to ya, and I can help with the draft if I end up staying home to watch it.

  1. I am a Kawann Short fan but 23 is too high… Keenan Allen’s stock is down too… I think I would move Short and Allen out of the top 25 and add Alec Ogletree and Robert Woods instead.

    Very Good top 25!

  2. yeah, i too feel like it is our christmas. more exciting than it used to be. much more hype

    1. Just hope we don’t find coal in our stockings this year. We are really positioned well with picks this year. Can’t afford to reach or waste any of our picks in the first 4 rounds at least.

          1. A lb that can’t cover anyone faster than Jim Kleinsaucer and a DT who should be a second rounder? I’ll stick with Xavier Rhodes and trading up for Sheldon Richardson

            1. I really hope the Vikes do not trade up. The gap in talent from the middle 1st to the middle or end of the second is not much different.

              1. don’t care if it’s the lower ones, cash ’em in, they’re usually throw-aways, and we’ve got plenty
